Yes it is illegal. You're distributing someone else's copyright without permission.

There's several problems with this. First the practical - if everyone can get an author's book for free, there's no incentive to pay, and the author won't make money from writing. They'll then have to get a job, and likely produce no more books.

Also, if your site is paid-membership, you're using someone else's work as an incentive for people to give you money. That's as bad as selling it.

And finally, it's the height of stupidity to come onto the website of an author and essentially ask can you sell their book, giving them no money, and you taking all of it.

I can't work out if this is spam, or someone that really doesn't understand what copyright is?

Its illegal to distribute any copyright material (whether you charge for it or give it away).

If you do, your site will be flagged, you will receive a 'take down' notice and could have legal action taken against you for loss of income by the publisher (not the author).

There are new anti copyright theft measures being taken from the start of next month which will identify sites hosting copyright material and taking action against them.

Bizarre, isn't it? I'd be tempted to call spam, except for the utter lack of links to the "paid membership" site, and the fact they asked a question earlier about putting ebooks on a site. I'm going to assume muppet.

I'm calling spam based on the links in the signature going to a site about ad revenue. :x

The sig links were an addon applied a few days after the original post.

Sorted it out now :)

Should start a spambot kill counter.
